Yesterday and today were rest days and I have never been more thankful. I normally get bored on rest days, particularly two back to back. The only reason I even had two was because my coach adjusted my schedule for work, which means I won't get a weekend day off anymore. I had toyed with the idea of making up my missed swim yesterday but I was still feeling under the weather and decided to take it easy. By the end of the day my voice was fading fast and I felt like I was finally coming down with the rest of the cold that started up on Friday.
Sure enough, I woke up this morning to partial laryngitis. Speaking above a certain decibel was simply impossible and I sounded horrible. It might have been ok if I weren't in meetings, largely conference calls, the entire day. By the end of the day I was toast.
I'm hoping this is just a mild cold/throat thing and will try to stay on track despite it. I'm setting the alarm for 5:45 so I can do my trainer ride before work. I hope this is on the way out vs. settling in. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
